  1. Sluggish, unresponsive, and slow. Luckily, all you got to do to win is constantly hammer on the “shoot” button.

    The game is large and the dedicated gamer will be kept busy for quite a while but I personally cannot imagine why on earth anyone would chose to subject themselves to such an undertaking. With so many superior games on the market there is no obviously legitimate reason to recommend Cy Girls.
  3. Remember the time when we were playing Cy Girls and we had to backtrack to the bathroom in an earlier part of a level to get to the controls of a robotic vacuum cleaner so we could open that door? That was awesome! [Mar 2004, p.107]

    Even given how solid Cy Girls combat elements are, the shoddy level design really makes it more frustrating to play than anything else. If you're going to play it, we recommend using a walkthrough.
  5. It is one of the most superficial Playstation2 titles we've seen in ages.
  6. The game is so simple and repetitive that it's like watching TV. It requires no brainpower at all and will lull you with the ease of play.

    You would have to be an insanely devoted fan of the action-figure line from which the characters originate and a fan of repetitive level exploration to gain any type of enjoyment from Cy Girls. [Apr 2004, p.74]
  8. There is some great action to be had, it just happens so sparingly it’s not worth the effort of fetching like my golden retriever.
  9. Cy-Girls may pretend to offer a path through interesting virtual worlds, but delivers nothing like that. The choice to play as Aska or Ice, or both, is just like having to choose being punched in the face or in the gut. Or both.
  10. Feels like a total waste of time, and if we had any white boots right now we'd ram our studs through its rubbish cover so it could never bother us again.

    Some hard in the puzzles, but the engine is very good.

    It's like playing MGsolid 2, killswitch and dead to rights all in one game.
